Ayurveda is one of the world`s oldest holistic healing system used 3000 years ago in India , where it was first discovered . It `s based on the belief that  health and wellness depends on a delicate balance between the mind , body , and spirit . Ayurveda is lifestyle , more than being a cure to certain ailments or diseases .  If we practice Ayurveda , we can surely enrich our life and our living attitudes by meditating,  balancing chakras and all those  healthy habits for the promotion of better health . Likewise – Ayurvedic massage brings balance to your body , mind and soul .


Here we will talk about Ayurvedic Massage which is known as “ Abhyanga” which is considered a most practice in Ayurveda . It is a warm oil massage and the main focus of this massage is to balance out doshas within your body to achieve spiritual fulfillment and relaxation . Also , Ayurvedic practice of Abhyanga (Oil massage ) touts physical benefits like released muscle tension , lymphatic drainage and nourishes skin from head to toe .

Doshas refer to the five elements which are earth , water , air, fire and space are known as Vata, fire and water as pitta and water and earth are called kapha . The body has a large energy points , hence , with a well trained touch and understanding of energy flow , the massage therapist is able to feel if and what imbalances your body might be experiencing . The herbal oil used for this purpose is decided by the Ayurvedic physician on the basis  of the patient `s Dosha prakriti . Sesame oil is perfect for carrying out Abhyanga massage . The systematic massage with Ayurvedic herbal oils help squeeze out toxic accumulation from the channels . Abhyangam treatment addresses imbalances within the body and works to bring a person`s Dosha back into its original state .

It starts with rubbing warm sesame oil over the body and increasing the stroke frequency to lightly warm the body . Slow and steady motions allow blood circulations in the body , making it more relaxed , alleviating exhaustion . it positively activates the body and keeps it in an a routine  basis .

 After the therapy the patient is said to take complete rest for some time for the oil to be absorbed in the body . Light digestible diet would be advised after the  bath . Massage along with steam bath produces great results . The effects are compounded since the heat and steam allow the medicated oils  to seep into the body and nourish them from the inside .
